Fried potato consumption is associated with elevated mortality: an 8-y longitudinal cohort study.

​A significant increase in mortality risk is associated with generous consumption of fried potatoes.

This study investigated the correlation between fried potato intake and mortality risk. A group of Italian researchers tracked the diets and mortality records of 4,440 men and women within the age bracket of 45 – 79 years for a period of 8 years.

The research team observed that subjects who ate the most fried potatoes were more likely to suffer from premature deaths than their counterparts who consumed little amounts or completely avoided fried potatoes. However, high dietary ingestion of un-fried potatoes appeared not to be related to mortality risk in this study. Data from this study indicate that increased consumption of fried potatoes may up the risk of dying prematurely.
